And on the following day Elephant House have their rearranged auction with a considerable number of machines (74 at last count)! Looks like it's goodbye to any Christmas presents to family and loved ones. :D

Re: EH / Collector Connector sales

Just watching the auction live - I thought it was on line only so how come there are "room" bids or does that mean the auctioneer is bidding too?

Re: Pot Luck Allwin problem

Thanks again Treefrog and thanks 13Rebel - the Forum saves my sanity one again !!THUMBSX2!! The Shoulder screw I can probably get from eBay and I have a box of assorted springs so that's no problem.

Re: Pot Luck Allwin problem

Thanks treefrog, I'll give it a try but the arm does move freely, just doesn't seem to be enough weight in it to drop back down on its own, almost like it's balance is out !PUZZLED! . If the change of nut doesn't work maybe I'll try adding a tiny bit of weight to it at the end (?)

Pot Luck Allwin problem

Hi all I have a Pot Luck Allwin which was basically just the unit without a cabinet as it was part of a 4-machines display, so I have been making a cabinet for it and have now got around to the actual workings. All works fine, ball spins beautifully and win rate just enough to keep it interesting. T...

Re: Tumbling Prices…

OK - in view of the above comments probably the wrong time to put a Circle Skill machine up for sale but I've put one in the Market on this site anyway as I need the space! (or to be honest, my wife does. dirtdog )

Re: Play-Ball allwin question

If it's the thumb stop there's one on eBay at the moment but it's a bit pricey if you don't need the other bits that are with it!

Sega Progressive Star electrics

I have a Sega Progressive Star which I am slowly working on but just one question: The electric lead had been cut off prior to my buying this at auction (presume for legal reasons?). I'm happy to dabble with the mechanicals but a bit wary about electrics. Before I investigate further :zapa: is there...

How to date a Bradley's Challenger?

I've put my Challenger on the Market section as I reluctantly have to sell it but realised, belatedly, I have no idea of its age. Are there any clues how to date it, as I'm now curious? I gather the metal instruction plates are a clue as later ones were plastic (?) and the machine number is stamped ...

In case any member is interested in buying this one I've put it in the Market before I try eBay. (I'm mentioning in a "post" as normally items in the market seem to get a brief mention as active topics but this one didn't yet*) I bought it in pretty poor condition (see pic) and have done w...
